Default 2 HDD 500gp and 1TB what to do?

Got a 500 gb and a 1 TB
What should I do with them? raid?
Was thinking use the 500gb (newer) for OS and games with many load screens
and the 1 TB for documents and games and music

how do I do that if thats a good idea help out?

Sounds about right. I wouldn't raid them, just keep them separate and use them like you were going to (500GB for OS + games, 1TB for storage).

There's three demon chicks in it, of course it's awesome

Your music folder you can just move over to the 1TB drive (and point itunes or whatever player you use at the new folder).
For the My Documents folder, see this microsoft article: How to Change the Default Location of the My Documents Folder

The OS/programs and data setup is definitely the way to go.

With 500 gigs I wouldn't even bother moving Documents. Music and videos, yes.
